Praise God, my mama has just been transferred from the ICU to a normal room. Her oxygen levels have stabilized and she is feeling better and slowly recovering. Her lungs are still being treated carefully. Doctor explained that she vomited blood because of the collapsed of her blood vessel. The water inside her lungs causes bacterial infection (aspiration) that’s why her high fever comes back and forth.. As advised by the doctor, the water must be extracted from her lungs otherwise it will lead to pneumonia. 😢 I’m just so relieved to see her smile and laugh with the kids… Grateful to all of you for the prayers… Let’s continue to pray for her speedy recovery. 🙏
However, Lahbati said her mother’s lungs are “still being treated carefully” after it was “infected” from the drowning incident.
